I don't see how the gameplay has aged at all.

Agreed, I played through them again a year or two ago and they were just as good as ever.  I'd take Shenmue over Yakuza anyday.

I own the first three Yakuza games and I've yet to play them because of how many games are in my backlog.  I know I'll enjoy the Yakuza games and i'm looking forward to going into the stores and looking at all the items on the shelf.  The shelves in Shenmue had a great feeling to it, I know that sounds weird but when you see diapers on sale with a baby's face that says "Mama", thats classic but I have a weird sense of humor I suppose.

You'll get a kick out of Yakuza 3&4 thanks to the much higher level of detail in the graphics. You like to appreciate the finer details, I can relate to that.

Only Yakuza 3, Yakuza 4 made it to the West unscathed.

It does its job but it's not particularly memorable. If you're into jpop check out the karaoke bar. When you're roaming around town there's only ambient sound but when you enter a bar you can hear the music that is playing there in the backgound. When you get into a fight an upbeat tune kicks in. During cutscenes you get the appropriate movie style soundtrack when required.

Considering how S2 never really got a proper Western release (PAL on DC and sent to die on the Xbox because of that cunt Peter Moore), I think people would enjoy being able to sit down and play both games.
I avoid online multiplayer because my brain still works.

Im glad at least yu Suzuki is working on something, even though it's a Kinect title.  You know that if he is involved, expect a great game, unless you hate him with a passion.  He is one of the reasons why Sega was successful in the 80's.

As soon as Yakuza 4 drops a few more dollars on amazon, it's mine :)

I`d recommend playing these games in the order they came out. That way you`ll appreciate the story and the characters much more.

Mostly excellent. Fits the games` theme just right.
Here`s a few tracks:

1)As a Man, As a Brother(Yakuza 2)

2)Kuroi Kizuato no Buruusu(Yakuza 2)
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PY82GtqZQ4A&feature=related

3)Fly(Yakuza 3)
